## Multiplicative Comparison Problems

Multiplicative Comparison type problems are explored in 4th and 5th grade.    Here are some great resources explaining these problem types.  There are several different types within the multiplicative comparison genre.  Remember that the research says that it is important for students to understand the type of problem they are solving rather than “key words.”
